Recommended Posts

There are some lovely shots in this thread - well done folks.

 

Since we can make three entries, here's my third. This is Fort St Angelo in Malta. It was at the heart of the defence in two sieges almost four centuries apart (1565 and 1941-42), both of which influenced the course of European history.

Great pictures in this threat already! If it were me to choose it would be difficult to boil it down to finalists.

The church at Gougane Barra, West Cork, Ireland.  I shot a wedding there a few years ago, aisle is only wide enough for one person.  Needless to say the groom walked behind the bride on their way out!!!
